As Twitter suspend Jayda Fransen, Paul Golding and Britain First’s accounts, Facebook have shamefully done nothing to stop them and the likes of Viscount St Davids continuing to spread hate
Britain First have 1.95 million followers on Facebook whilst the hate group’s deputy, Jayda Fransen, has 236,500 and its leader, Paul Golding, has 202,000. Whilst Twitter opted to close down all three for violating their new policy prohibiting “groups that affiliate with organisations that use or promote violence against civilians to further their causes,” Facebook shamefully have done nothing.
In allowing Britain First to continue to preach bile, just as occurred with the racist jailbird Viscount St Davids – still on Facebook in spite of his conviction for offering rewards for the killing of others on that medium – Facebook brings only shame on itself. It is time this multi-billion pound business shut down the accounts these vile individuals and organisations use to spread their warped mantras.
